Can iPhone topple BlackBerry?

In just 8 months Apple redefined the entire smartphone market, or so CEO Steve Jobs claims.

"This mirrors the swipes that Apple used to take at Microsoft. They're always delivered with the Jobsian wink and smirk, but they are far from the offhand remarks they're packaged to be," Tom Yager writes in Apple's BlackBerry offensive.

"In BlackBerry's case, Jobs took the opportunity to reveal some little-known information about BlackBerry -- widely published, just not the kind of details that BlackBerry users care about -- and portray it as a powerful disadvantage that makes the fresh technology that iPhone brings to the market a necessity."

Then again, Yager points out, "there are some facts stated by Steve Jobs that were flat wrong."
